Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Fractal Geometry is the geometry of the natural world - animal, vegetable and mineral. It's about the broken, wrinkled, wiggly world - the uneven shapes of nature, unlike the idealized forms of Euclidean geometry. We see fractals everywhere; indeed we are fractal! Fractal Geometry is an extension of classical geometry. Using computers, it can make precise models of physical structures - from ferns to galaxies. Fractal geometry is a new language. Once you speak it, you can describe the shape of cloud as precisely as an architect can describe a house.

Synopsis:

Fractals are one of the most incredible branches of mathematics. They are a language that can describe the precise shape of a human brain or the universe. Everywhere we look, fractals fill our world. Over 10000 copies have been sold in the US. Using unique text and graphics it tells the story of fractals and shows why they are invaluable for everything, from understanding our own bodies to predicting where hidden oil reserves are located.

Synopsis:

We see fractals everywhere; indeed we are fractal!
